Taking dd to the dr (Updated with pics)

Dd has been saying her big toe is "ouchie" for a couple days but we couldn't see anything wrong. This morning she woke up with it swollen and red and purplish. It's weird. It looks to me like it's infected somehow. So we thought it was better to have it looked at to be safe. I don't think she hit it or anything and she's been saying it hurts for about 3 days so I would think smashing it on something would have shown bruising/swelling before now. She's also got a kinda barking cough that she's had for several days now. Idk if it's anything to be concerned about really but we'll mention it.

Could it be an in-grown toe nail. I had those when I was young and they are very painful.

So she has an infected toe. The dr was afraid of the infection spreading and going into her bone so she put dd on antibiotics. She also has a red throat but the dr said if that's anything, the antibiotics will clear it up too. This is her second time on antibiotics in the past month. Poor kid needs a break.

The dr thinks her father cut her nail too short.
